Connections Mentoring Program

Connecting Through Our Differences

The United and Mutually Equal Mentoring Program at Western New England University helps students make a connection and build lasting relationships among the incoming underrepresented students and upperclass students who are members of U&ME.

The program was created with the belief that personal relationships foster a sense of belonging and community that will allow incoming freshman to create a bond with someone who is able to help them integrate into college life, and who may have had a shared or similar life experience. These connections enrich their college experience so that they remain at Western New England University for their entire four years, and become committed alumni and active participants in the Alumni Association.
